I had this issue back in November of '09, before anyone had heard of it. The dealer eventually figured it out and replaced the fusebox and B+ lead, but it cost me over $2,000. Then it started happening again a month ago, and i found the new servive bulletin saying the old B+ lead has a corrosion issue. In any case, i was lucky, another dealer replaced the fusebox (again) and newly designed lead - for free under a parts and labor warranty. Figured I'd let people know - I bought my car new in '07, about 2 years later the issue surfaced, then again just under 2 years later. Make sure you get the new B+ lead, supposedly has a silver connection that prevents corrosion. Otherwise, expect the issue every 2 years.
